We will also have representatives from the Waisman Center, the School of Medicine and Public Health and the UW Hospital, and others, who will be sharing their research or offering hands-on demonstrations regarding ultrasound physics, stem cells, DNA science, nanoparticle science, biofilm microbes, auditory science, the science of swallowing, and how ECGs operate.
